Have you seen the new downsized Wienermobile, based on the Mini Cooper? WANT!

There's a pretty funny story about cops pulling over a weinermobile they thought was stolen:

"Cops Ketchup with Weinermobile"

How's your traffic now????

I wondered if the weinermobile is based in Seattle, because I often see it parked on Aurora and Denny Way over by that hotel there.

Does anyone know more info?

At least 7 currently on the road doing Oscar Mayer publicity: 6 of the full-size 2004 version scattered around the country, plus the Mini version (see above). From the Wikipedia article:
...The hotdogger position of driving the Wienermobile is an open position to U.S. citizens and the duration of the job lasts for one full year: from the first of June until the following first of June. Every March at Kraft and Oscar Mayer headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin there are final round interviews held for the hotdogger position. Each vehicle holds two hotdoggers, and twelve people are chosen from a final pool of 30 candidates brought to Oscar Mayer headquarters. The 30 candidates are screened across the country from over an average of 2000 applicants. Both current hotdoggers and Oscar Mayer recruiters visit college campuses across the country in search of the next round of hotdoggers. Only college seniors who are about to graduate are eligible for applying to this hotdogger position. Currently there are about 300 hotdogger alumni...
